So was that a good short answer?

Is your task manager showing full CPU usage?

I would start over. Something sounds wrong in the install, but it might help to post the contents of your fahlog.txt for each machine, so I can take a look. The SMP client will run fine on your boxes 1, 2 and 3. I can only make a guess, but I'd think you should produce at least double that on the quads. Maybe on the X2, also. My Opteron dual at 3.2G does around 1200ppd. My Q6600 at 3.5G does between 4.5 and 6.5K ppd, up to the WU.

Also post the command line of the shortcut that you use to start the client. You may not be using the -smp flag, and that would cut performance in half.

There are a few very slow WUs out there, though. You may have some. That is why I want to see your log.

You should also try the GPU client on 1 and 3. Those 9800s will run it, and GPU makes big points.
